OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 37.194 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth an astonishing 10,258 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 275,816 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Vasbury" t-shirts, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilkshire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilkshire is ranked 33rd in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 309.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
